In this class you will learn all the basics of working stranded colorwork knitting. This simple pattern is a perfect primer on the technique, with a simple 4-stitch repeat that will give you a chance to focus on the finesse of your technique rather than memorizing a complex schematic. We will cover reading a chart, yarn management, and the various options for hand positions for both comfort and speed.
